    Great, however I thought West Virginias motto was, "It's All Relative in West Virginia...." Anyway your motto is pretty close

    Being from CT I thought you all should know that the state motto is, "He who transplants, sustains." So far I've transplanted to Iowa, Massachusetts, Florida, California, and New York. I'd have to say that I have indeed sustained.

    Now the town I grew up in didn't have a motto at all. There was however a big sign at the city limits that read, "Welcome to XXXXX! Always a place to park." Ain't that something?

    I always thought they read the words wrong when they would sing our state's old tourism ad.

    It SHOULD have been

    Many years ago I was vacationing in Wisconsin and stopped in to a tourist information center. At the time the state was holding a contest for a tourism motto and the top entries were posted on a bulletin board at the center. So help me God, one of the entries was:

    Wisconsin! It's shaped like a mitten.
